General information about GRU job listings
- Minimum salary information - There may be a
minimum salary or a salary range listed for each position on the
vacancy list. Hiring salary offers will not be lower than the
posted minimum rate for the position. Actual salary offers are
dependent upon the candidates qualifications, existing GRU
policies, and the availability of funds for that department. The
Classification, Compensation and Employment recruitment staff
will work with the hiring departments to determine the
appropriate rate of pay. Individuals with considerable skills and
experience beyond the minimum hiring standard may be hired at a
rate higher than the minimum, if departmental resources and
internal equity considerations permit. For further
information, please see:
